Refractometer, Brix



Product Description

This device measures the gravity of a liquid by measuring the refraction index of light to determine how much sugar is in solution. Refractometers require only a very small sample to work and are more portable than a hydrometer and test tube. These are often used by vintners to determine the sugar content of grapes right off the vine. The presence of alcohol can skew the measurements, so calibration is required when taking readings after fermentation has begun. Measures in degrees Brix only.
